If you care about the future of farming in Britain, now is the time to act.
The government’s consultation on the future for food, farming and the environment after Brexit closes on 8 May, so make sure your voice is heard.
This is an opportunity to remind the government that farmers and other private stewards of the countryside are responsible for a great deal of good and, given the support to do so, can achieve even more for the environment and the people they feed.
Farmers and land managers are stewards of the landscape, being responsible for the management of three quarters of the land in the UK. This role comes with responsibilities towards wildlife, the environment and ecosystem services, which should be recognised and supported.
It is vital that funding that currently supports agriculture and the environment is retained and policy delivers for Britain’s wildlife. We hope for an environmental policy that encourages conservation and environment measures across a larger scale and offers farmers greater choice and results in better outcomes for conservation.
It is by working with our farmers, rather than against them, that we can offer a better future for Britain’s wildlife.
Have your say today by completing the government’s questionnaire here or by emailing email@example.com.
Remember, you only have until 8 May to contribute to the consultation. You can help us work towards a future policy that recognises and rewards the contribution that good farming has on our environment.
